COVID-19 Deaths by Age

Updated February 17, 2021 – The Heritage Foundation

My cmnt: It should be noted that the vast majority of these Covid deaths (and remember that there is a huge financial incentive from the democrats to report any death as a Covid death whether Covid was responsible or not) occur among people that have already outlived the average lifespan.

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, COVID-19 is deadliest among older populations. In fact, through February 17, 93 percent of COVID-19 deaths nationwide have occurred among those ages 55 or older. Only 0.2 percent were younger than 25. This trend can also be found on the state level.

CDC data also show that Americans, regardless of age group, are far more likely to die of something other than COVID-19. Even among those in the most heavily impacted age group (85 and older), only 13.3 percent of all deaths since February 2020 were due to COVID-19.
